Before. Committee are hostile committee. Would your advice be an is that normal advice just answer the questions honestly don't volunteer any information but just answer the questions honestly. That's double bill in Villa by the lawyers on two to give to a client lawyers certainly can't suggest during her client lie. But the Hubble only the best advice when your client is testifying under the simply answer the questions don't elaborate. Don't go off topic. Just given straight direct answers Drupal. So it saves Jeff Sessions were asked and I know there's a lot more to come on on this but generally speaking your first gut reaction. If I have if I'm testifying in and I am the I'm with the armed services committee. And I'm asked it did you have any com it would chickens in the wording of the question. Did you have any contact with the Russians as it pertains to the front campaign. And I say no because the contact was with. My role as a senator Arnie Arnie armed services committee and I perjured myself aren't I answer that question honestly and just didn't provide. Any more information then they ask for. Yeah obviously. The court to stop now. App that. Be very precise in your questions and you're gonna get answers to questions. Let it. You simply get yeah now that it's fair to say that answer was directed to that Merrill Compaq so. What the hell he could make the argument that he was asked what the contact with them that in the context of him being associated with the trump campaign. And as opposed it in his capacity. As a member of the armed. Different. Again you. Quit you and your. Question. I let's move on I appreciate that Neil Neal. Guiding vision and come on for that but Nielsen Zito in jail. Charges he's facing how many charges under way now. Well over thirty target the vehicular. Negligent. And it has problems just getting worse it failed quadrupled. Over. The millions. Out there you know pending trial. So it is incredible work and and on the one man on the other hand because it's. It the opposite corner about the current 38 Y and a charging them. Global. Formal elements from Asian art Portland thirty counts of vehicular and equity current problem at least. Then or twelve will be. First degree it would negligent or which has when you are drawn and and you hit someone and you cause quote serious bodily. Which means. Serious pain on content that your that your girl awesome. The wind power organs. Event that you're eligible to five years. Per count. And once you start backing running consecutively. More than thirty counts. The number get quite large and that's what mr. in the. So he could be looking at an unknown dated Matt dean does Dane rather this is a good roughly if they run consecutively. Oh. No doubt he could be looking over under years running consecutively but that's not. It would took what the mandated operatives and the worthy of punishment but it doesn't that are actually witnessed. I'm in the criminal law results met her and he didn't thankfully. Kill anyone took it and not the case that it. The battery tight case truck driving type case it's one guy. He really should be looking. Any sort of determine its patent that could get a close to a lot. I'm going back ten to fifteen years where he a couple of real. Corporate. Of this and there's no doubt serious crime and it's not the most current. Are let me get to this I'm gone through his. A story here and he had to get is his background bouncer today Ricci back collide at a church. I had a little civil trouble with the you know Lafayette about pay and some backed tuition. A member of the young Marines. No criminal arrests in. The pairs is that they'd check. In terms of two things quickly in terms of him possibly having DUIs. Tools board DWIs and handing them expunged from his record. Is their procedure Louisiana where they could have happened or not. Well there Shia and easily hurt indecent about it kronor. Prior DW I arrest I would expect that we heard about the fine now. It's possible that he could at that one that was on our. But I think we heard about it. I didn't secondly his father maintains it does so when he gave him a drink. And now that's would that would cause him to do this is that in any factor in his at all without any evidence. Yeah I mean that sounds like and that pummel the ludicrous the current. I'm certain lawyers tell them that. But that's not. Anyway this plan does this kind of accusation of criminal. What he needs to do it and were going to do it. It looked like trial. He needs to step up take responsibility. Essentially passed from person John McCain and down and hopefully. Get a get out of jail and you describe the contesting this not accepting responsibility you know. Really stepped up on Clinton and. Yeah and you can't. You look at this outside of a political context I don't think. If it's the first time offense you might say fifteen years as harsh on that saying you are I am some good. You'd you'd politically you can't drive a truck into. Into a and I am not trying to make light of this and open and on Mardi Gras crowd I mean is gonna resonate with everybody that's ever been new Mardi Gras parade your sand. Best of best shot he's god is don't letting go to trial. Pleaded out and he's looking at ten to fifteen years so if he. The idea and I was sentencing system works there are jail time he would do what happened that. I. I mean he will be published. And part of the crumbled a remote jungle. I urged the community that this is unacceptable crop up so yeah. Morsel. Lack of proper criminal history and means good character would otherwise. Call war. A student and unfortunately. It expands. Let me tell you that he'll probably one sentence to someone. Through. Or maybe injured two people on. Visible current.
